Kid Pirates

The Kid Pirates are an infamous and notable rookie pirate crew led by Eustass Kid.

The most significant aspect of their appearance is that most, if not all of the Kid Pirates have heavy metalesque appearances. Also, many of them seem to wear leather in one way or another. There are 4 named members in the crew: Eustass Kid, Killer, Heat, and Wire.

They are most known for dealing major destruction and civilian casualties along their route through the Grand Line and towards the New World. Furthermore, the entire crew easily survived the blast of Haki released by Silvers Rayleigh, a testament to their overall strength. In spite of their great potency in battle and overall level-mindedness, the members of this crew display an inate sense of haughtiness. They have also formed an alliance with the Hawkins and On Air Pirates.

Their ship continues the theme of heavy metal, with a bizarre skull as part of the deck, resembling some heavy metal bands’ stages. Their ship was coated with the Yarukiman resin, allowing it to submerge underwater by reducing its buoyancy, and withstanding the water pressure of 10,000 feet.

The ship in full sight:

The Kid Pirates’ flag represent the usual grinning skull having Kid’s hairstyle and wearing the latter’s square shaped goggles on its forehead. In the background there is the traditional cross-bone pattern plus what seems to represent two knives forming a cross as well. Moreover, on each sides of the skull there are flame-like patterns.

    Roronoa Zoro & Silvers Rayleigh

    zoro & rayleigh

    One thing that these two characters differ on is that they have different personalities, while Rayleigh is more laid back, Zoro is more intense.

      Gomu Gomu no… Leo Bazooka!


        CP0’S POWERS

        If CP0’s main trio that we saw in Dressrosa has Devil Fruit abilities, there is no doubt these will be incredibly powerful powers. Afterall, given their role and likely amount of power as the ultimate shield for the Tenryuubito and Gorosei against external threats, it would be ludicrous to think they would have less powerful Devil Fruits. Of course there is the possibility that they do not possess Devil Fruits, but I find this unlikely.

        One important thing to note is that AEGIS is a defensive ability that the Ancient Greek Gods possessed. This and other factors considered, I will rule out Logia Devil Fruit powers for the following reasons:

        • Rokushiki is most effectively used when a users body is enhanced, Logias do not do this, however, Paramecia can and Zoans always do
        • There is a limited number of Logia fruits Oda can use at this point

        Now, as I said, as Rokushiki is a heavily body-dependent fighting style, the members of CP0 all likely have very powerful Kenbunshoku and Busoshoku Haki.

        According to One Piece trivia, Oda has namedropped another Rokushiki technique called ‘Chokkai’, it’s name means ‘to bother’, although nothing more is known, whether Oda is joking or not is also questionable. If Oda is being truthful about this, having not seen this technique before, we will likely see CP0 using this. If Chokkai is real I suspect the technique will involve after images and immense speed the same way Rokuogan involved immense strength.

        From what we know so far, this is a list of abilities they likely have:

        • Busoshoku Haki
        • Kenbunshoku Haki
        • Chokkai
        • Rokuogan
        • Kami-e
        • Geppo
        • Soru
        • Tekkai
        • Rankyaku
        • Shigan
        • Combination of Haki and Rokushiki

        As for Devil Fruits:
        Aegis to our best knowledge has three different possible source materials in Greek Mythology. There are three of these CP0 agents and therefore I believe that they each have a direct link to every singular part of Aegis.

        The first instance will relate to this man:


        Basilisk Mythical Zoan – Hebi Hebi no Mi Model: Basilisk
        This is because, in myth, the shield first contained the skin and hair of a Gorgon, granting it incredible invulnerability as it could use Stone for protection and manipulate stone as well as turn enemies into stone. Although the ability to turn people into stone is taken by the Mero Mero no Mi and the Gorgon-based character is embodied in Hancock, a Basilisk Zoan is still very likely and powerful



        • Flight
        • Turn opponent to stone upon contact (not automatic)
        • Extra speed and agility
        • Size advantages
        • Greater muscular power
        • Regenerative ability to external wounds

        Secondly, the right hand man from the long arm tribe:


        Chimera Mythical Zoan – Neko Neko no Mi Model: Chimera
        Legend also states that a Chimera-esque creature of unspecified appearance had formed a part of the Shields construction. The creature is likely strongly related to Chimera. Therefore it’s highly probable that Oda would use the actual Chimera for this guys powers



        • Flame breath
        • Poisonous bite from tail
        • Claws of incalculable strength (swords slashing?)
        • Horns of incalculable density
        • Enhanced speed
        • Enhanced strength and power

        Lastly, the tallest of the three characters:


        Iron Paramecia – Tetsu Tetsu no Mi
        There was a giant killed by Athena called Pallas, and another called Asterus, both of whom had incredibly strong hyde/skin that was resistant to any mortal damage. At the time of the Greeks, Iron was the strongest metal discovered, hence this is a good choice. This guy is huge anyway and can be considered a symbolism the giants in question, his ability will greatly enhance his ability to defend himself



        • Enhanced defence (absolute defence? +Tekkai + Busoshoku Haki)
        • Greater muscular strength
        • Power and density increased greatly
        • Ability to create and manipulate pre-existing Iron
        • Slight magnetic properties

        Well, whether I’m right or wrong, these guys are totally monstrous, but this is a little bit of fun, hope you enjoyed! Do you like these choices of Devil Fruit?

            Best Scenes of Luffy’s Gear Fourth!



              Doflamingo said that Luffy is bad at using his DF, so how would Luffy get better? Now before i go on, i am not going to say words like “awakening” however i can say that without a doubt, the what i am about to say next will probably be one of Luffy’s power ups.

              Now what i believe Luffy needs is: 100% control of elasticity without with his DF alone(no haki should be needed).
              Now there are a few things i want to say when talking about elasticity; first, what is elasticity? Well elasticity is the tendency of an object to return to it’s original state after deformation; so let me paint a picture for you

              • high elasticity- this is basically vulcanized rubber [​IMG] now, i’m not saying that Luffy will ever vulcanize his body(imo it’s unlikely); but i do believe he will be able to make is body as elastic as vulcanized rubber with his DF, and make his body as hard as vulcanized rubber with haki
              • low elasticity- when he stretches his body, instead of his body reshaping it just remains stretched [​IMG] at max potential, Luffy could become like slime. HOWEVER i highly highly highly highly highly highly(okay i think you get the point know) doubt that he will ever become a logia. I don’t believe he will become a liquid, but rather a a semi solid. He will not be able to detach parts of his body, however his body would be so stretched out that he would act like a liquid in almost every way apart from being able to separate his body(he cannot separate ). I believe Luffy needs to work more on being less elastic as it is a skill he seems to lack

              But can’t Luffy already do this? Well he can control elasticity like this to a degree, however it is evident that he has not mastered this ability, he cannot use bounceman without haki.

              What can Luffy do with this? Welll here’s just one technique i came up with that would really help Luffy out(forgive the bad art, i’m not good at drawing on my computer)
              Gomu Gomu no Sword; with this technique, Luffy reduces the elasticity in his bones, he then reshapes his hand into a sword. Once the hand is reshaped, Luffy then uses haki on the hand to make it hard, he also increases elasticity so that his sword doesn’t change shape. This would be a very good technique as it would give him more options in battle, which is very good as it gives him ways to counter certain fighting styles and moves.

              But what about the gear? Yes i’ll get to that next

              GEAR 5

              Now i believe this gear will focus completely on manipulating elasticity. But first what will it be? Well i believe it will be skin balloon, now their is enough evidence to back this up so i won’t discuss it any further.


              Well as i said; G5 will be haki, DF awakening, and skin balloon. But what techniques will luffy use with this? Well I believe their will be 2 forms to G5. Those being:

              • fatman
              • burnman

              Allow me to explain


              As we know, all of Luffy’s gears are based on things Luffy has encountered in his life. So what will G5 be based off of? I believe it will be based on the techniques of these 2 men
              So here’s what I am thinking:

              • Luffy inflates his skin; and becomes as big as Sengoku
              • now he will control elasticity to control his shape
              • this form will give him insane defense as Luffy could control the elasticity in his skin to make him almost invulnerable to most(if not all) non DF/non sea stone attacks

              Why use skin balloon when you can use bone and muscle? What’s the point of skin balloon? Well i think many of you believe that skin balloon is just Luffy enlarging his whole body, but i have a different idea. I believe fatman will be a lot like titan transformations in Attack on Titan

              I believe fatman will look something like this

              Luffy’s skin will be as big as Sengoku’s body; however Luffy’s organs, muscles, and bones will stay their regular size. Because of this, Luffy will be able to act a lot like Pica; if someone hit’s his skin balloon, he takes very little damage since he can freely move his real body around in the skin balloon. However he will take damage if his muscles, bones, and organs are damaged

              I believe this form will be based on low elasticity. So how will this help him? Well here is just a thought on what i think controlling elasticity could do

              So say this picture represents Luffy’s arm after he uses skin balloon, now by controlling elasticity i believe he will do something like this

              Now if you are confused by my shitty drawing skills, this is basically what i am talking about

              • Luffy will decrease the elasticity in certain parts of his skin to reshape parts of his skin into new limbs

              Now if Luffy uses this power at full potential, he would probably look a lot like this
              Luffy would reshape the skin in his body into thousands of new arms. this could be used to defend against enemies that would use luffy’s huge size in fatman to outmaneuver him. Furthermore this could also be used to create the ultimate gatling; we all know that Luffy probably has a move called “kong gatling” which is a gatling version of kong gun that would deal massive damage to opponents. Now with fatman, Luffy could do a “thousand arm gatling” that would be him using kong gatling in each of his arms

              This is a pic of how Luffy in fatman mode would use gatling

              First he focuses all the air and into the skin near his fists; this means that he is no longer protected by his skin balloon, but rather he 2 huge skin balloons near his fists. He then reshapes all the skin near his fists into their own fists; this means that Luffy will have thousands of fists made of skin growing off his hands; when using gatling, he will make each and every one of these fists use kong gatling


              As i said before; Luffy will have a problem with speed when he is using fatman. So how will he fix this? Well i believe he will take his body to the absolute limit. He will do this by using all of his haki, combined with his physical strength to compress the all the air inside of fatman into a body the size of Luffy. By doing this Luffy will have to go full body CoA; however his skin will actually begin tearing from the pressure, his skin would also be heated up to insanely high temperatures do to the cells in his skin overworking. This would cause parts of his skin to begin to burn up, making Luffy’s skin look something like this
              So what will burnman be like:

              • Luffy will now be as tall as Doflamingo
              • his skin would be completely covered in armament; but of few of these spots on Luffy’s skin would be burning do to the heat
              • he would now be extremely heavy, but be small in comparison
              • Luffy will now be able to go fast, while keeping the same power as fatman
              • this form will be based on high elasticity; because of the insane elasticity Luffy’s body will be at, Luffy’s body would act almost as if he was vulcanized(he would not be vulcanized, but he would be as elastic as vulcanized rubber)

              How would burnman fight? Well here’s what i am thinking:

              • he would do techniques like kong gun and leo bazooka still; however due to the insane amount of pressure Luffy would be containing, when he contracts his fist, the air would burn up almost instantly. When Luffy releases the punch, his attack would look almost like a hiken(but it would be stronger). Just one kong gun in burman-mode could potentially take out an island
              • Luffy would be fast and heavy at the same time; meaning he would have insane momentum with his punches
              • due to Luffy’s skin being full of highly compressed gasses, even someone like Zoro would have a hard time trying to cut Luffy

              *Theory by Monkey D Theories


                This is gonna be a pet project of mine where I make a detailed analysis of what technique(s) in the One Piece world is perfect for one individual character at a time. Looking at things such as fixing weaknesses in a character’s fighting style, theorizing on potential abilities the user is not tapping into with their DF etc. All in an effort to try and get as close to the max potential for a character and things we may see being used by these characters when they reappear.

                The Strawhats have been done to death, and I will do one of them every once and awhile (Probably not the DF users too much) but just in honour of the Year of Sanji that is on the horizon, I would like to start with the badass martial artist of the crew. Don’t expect many strawhats after the first few that I want to talk about, because like I said, they have been done to death. Alright that’s enough intro let’s get to it.

                BLACK LEG SANJI


                Sanji, the awesome kick fighter of the crew. Master of the Black Leg Style, and creator of the Diable Jamble technique, Sanji imo has always been a cool character who hasn’t reached his full potential yet. With the Year of Sanji on the way, that may start to change so he can finally reach levels where he can take on Kizaru at the end of the series, because that would be awesome.

                CURRENT STRENGTHS

                1. Black Leg Style :- A strong 100% kick based fighting style that is designed to protect the user’s hands from fighting to prevent damage. Primarily to allow the user to be a chef.
                2. Diable Jamble :- Using high speed rotation to create friction that builds up heat around the focal point, adding fire and heat to the user’s normal technique. Perfect for breaking through Tekkai. I’ll get into why later.
                3. Haki :- Will specialize in Observation according to Oda, so that’s guaranteed to be his strongest colour. Will have armaments as well.
                4. Speed :- Probably the fastest member at base, with only Luffy surpassing using Gears.
                5. Geppou :- Learned skill from CP9
                6. General superhuman stats to varying degrees in all other areas.​


                CURRENT WEAKNESSES
                1. Lacking in durability a tad, as seen when Vergo almost broke his leg.
                2. Lacking in physical power comparatively speaking when compared to the other members of the Monster Trio
                3. Still inexperienced with haki
                4. Lack of ranged attacks, very close quarter oriented fighter.
                TYPE OF OPPONENTS​

                I think this is a huge clue as to the type of final antagonists Sanji will face. He either faces someone who uses a unique type of martial arts, such as Kurobo(Fishman Karate), Jyabura(Tekkai Kenpo), Wanze (Ramen Kenpo), Bon Clay(Okama Kenpo) or he faces someone who has a really strong armour/body, Pearl(Iron armour) or Absalom(Animal skin body).

                Pearl in particular foreshadowed a LOT of Sanji’s current techniques and he’s easy to forget because of how long ago he was. He even had a technique that cloaked himself in fire. He may be foreshadowing my matchup with a Diamond fruit using Burgess at the end of the series. Yet another precious stone that can be used. So now that we have that out of the way, let’s get into the skills that Sanji will pick up
                that are perfectly crafted to assist him.

                1. RANKYAKU (TEMPEST KICK)

                This is the martial arts version of the air slash that swordsmen use. And it is unique way of Oda giving martial artists, ranged techniques. This technique in particular is pretty essential for Sanji’s fighting style. It gives him range, and he specifically can draw even greater potential out of this move than we have seen so far because his entire fighting style is focused on his legs. He may already have the capability to use this technique.

                What makes this technique particularly deadly in the hands of Sanji is Diable Jamble. Could he create a flaming kick slash? That is the question. On the surface the answer is no. To ignite the air requires a ridiculously hot heat source and one that is constantly producing heat.

                We all want Sanji to get hotter, but spinning more, or spinning faster will never get you there. Friction is a very labour intensive way to generate heat. The more friction, the more heat that is lost to the surroundings. In fact, it is a very inefficient way. So even if Sanji were to spin a lot faster, initially he may gain some heat, but he’ll lose it just as fast. Not just to the friction, but also to the temperature gradient he would be creating between his leg (the source) and the atmosphere around him.
                The hotter something is, the faster it loses heat to its environment.

                Therefore, Sanji’s current method of generating Diable Jamble will eventually be antiquated, incapable of developing any further beyond its max point. And I’d say, not efficient enough heat wise to creating a flaming Rankyaku.


                However, as for basic Rankyaku, I’d expect Sanji to be able to pull that off in his sleep.
                So we have out first likely technique.



                Diable Jamble is an amazing technique. And its usefulness is largley overshadowed by the fire aspect. But where Diable really shines is transfer of thermal energy. Heat, is basically measured by how much motion is ongoing in a body of matter.

                That’s why thermal durability is in many ways more impressive than physical durability. To be resistant to heat, one’s own molecules have to resist absorbing thermal energy from any heat source. Naturally, bodies made of flesh don’t have such impressive qualities. It’s why Diable Jabmle ate through Tekkai like butter, as that technique is the physical reinforcement of the body through extreme tensing. But Diable Jamble transfers thermal energy to its target, giving the atoms more energy that they have to move around more, forcibly undoing the tension Tekkai created. This is probably one of my favourite powerups any Strawhat has ever had it’s awesome.

                However, in light of the activation limitations I outlined above, if Sanji is gonna reach a higher level of Diable Jamble, he will probably need to create a new way to activate the technique that doesn’t involve friction against the environment in any capacity (air or water). The best way would be somehow to generate the heat internally and let it radiate outwards. (Well the best way is to get some kind of DF, but I’m not going there. I don’t think anyone thinks Sanji is gonna get a DF). So how does Sanji create more intense heat for his Diable Jamble? The answer was just revealed in the recent Dressrosa Arc.


                The practitioners of Hasshoken have a remarkable technique. Technically, it’s not even remotely possible physically without destroying yourself. What they have done, is learned to oscillate their molecules around a fixed position without losing form to such a high degree that they can can produce vibrational waves, that radiate outwards and cause the molecules of rigid objects like metal, to fracture and fall apart.

                Anything that doesn’t oscillate well internally is likely to fall apart under the strain of these waves. In many ways it’s brilliant and might be the coolest martial arts in the series, behind Rokushiki. At least imo.
                But what does this have to do with Diable Jamble? Vibrations. Vibrations don’t only produce force, high enough vibration produce HEAT.

                If you think about it, heat is just the sensation produced by the motion of atoms of matter. Furthermore, heat is really impossible without two things; Matter and Motion. By vibrating, Sanji could completely change his Diable Jamble activation. He won’t have to spin at all. He’d just have to vibrate his leg and it will heat up, much more evenly and less wasteful as well. And he could keep the vibrations going at will, so he won’t be constantly losing heat with Diable Jamble after he activates it. After all, once the friction is done, the technique only last a short while after.

                With this skill, and using it in his own way, Sanji will actually be able to achieve higher levels of heat, as he’d be able to produce a steady ignition source at all times so long as he could keep the vibrations going. While at the same time, when not needed, just adding vibrations to his regular Diable Jamble adds another layer of penetration that makes his attacks deadly.

                This also gives Sanji a unique way of breaking down even the toughest of defenses. Through constant pressuring with attacks imbued with both heat and molecular vibration, every time his kick hits an object it becomes progressively weaker and will be almost guaranteed to fall apart. A full course of Sanji cooking.

                This martial art is thus perfect for giving Sanji the skill to ascend to even greater heights both in his fighting techniques as well as haki. I’m 100% sure he will gain this skill.

                3. HEAT AS HOT AS HELL’S FLAMES


                How hot can Sanji then go with technique? How hot does he need to go? It’s an interesting question. But it depends the opponents he will face. If he has to beat Diamond, he would need to go past 3550 degrees celsius. In perspective the surface of the sun is around 5500 degrees celsius, so he’s not far off at that stage.

                It would be amazing to see Sanji reach the temperature of the sun and melt the ground and shit as he walks. The sky is the limit. What we have to balance however is how does he avoid hurting himself with these techniques? Well, the only option is Armament haki, but special clothes may also end up being necessary depending how hot he goes to. We know that Marigold used her haki to protect her while she set herself on fire, so we can only guess haki would be involved in protection from the heat for Sanji.

                Just a note on Sanji’s haki. Oda has taken the fun out of speculating on this area by basically confirming Sanji will specialize in CoO, which is great because that was my prediction all the way back during the break after chapter 597. To fight Kizaru however, Sanji’s speed needs to be absurd. Observation can only take you so far.

                4. SANJI’S SPEED TECHNIQUE

                It’s simple, Sanji has to find a way to use his immense leg strength to push the boundaries of some speed technique to a new level to take on Kizaru. Soru being the number one candidate with it’s acceleration technique of kicking the ground over 10 times in an instant. But what if you pushed that number even further. 20+, 50+ 100+ times at the starting moment could produced speeds well beyond what Soru does.

                On the other end of the spectrum it could be something new entirely, that doesn’t use kicks. Maybe some kind of muscular manipulation technique that produces one big burst instead of multiple rapid ones. Like Urouge’s bulk up or Lao G’s cellular energy store thingamajig. Maybe this technique will be bolstered by Fighting Cuisine and strengthen the body to store that kind of energy. Either way, Sanji will likely be the fastest non DF user in the world by the end of the series. Which is mighty fine and I can’t wait to see it.


                So we have CP9 techniques, with Hasshoken, and haki and new heat techniques all wrapped up into one. I’m sure you can tell I didn’t bother going in depth into things like Haki because it felt obvious to me at least where these skills were heading. It’s also too universal, you could lap it on anyone. Alternatively, I focused on the likekly more unique skills Sanji would end up acquiring.

                Now we have all of compiled, what are you ideas on what skills Sanji will develop?

                *Theory by TheConqueror

                  Badass! *_*



                    Hey people, so lately I’ve seen so many people underestimate Observation type of haki (me included tbh), and that armament haki is a better type for fighters. And that all what observation can do during the fight is predicting a move and dodging and it cannot affect the opponent that way. In other words, bring a match of two people, one has the better armament, and weaker observation, while the other has better observation and weaker armament. Most people will go and say the guy with better armament will win cause there is no point in dodging if you cannot hit and hurt the guy with better armament.

                    However, from how we see Oda, he always tries to redeem things. We’ve seen how people belittle DFs after Haki introduction, but after awakening, DF got back as a dangerous factor as we can see.

                    That lead me to believe that Oda will somehow manage to give a huuge feature and dangerous aspect to observation in combat other than just being able to dodge attacks and balance the two types of haki, observation and armament as being two equal types in combat.

                    So far, observation has showed only one main use in combat which is defensive way by dodging. On the other hand, Armament haki showed two ways, defensive by blocking and offensive by using it to hit logia and even inflect more damage than a normal hit.

                    That lead me to believe that Oda still didn’t show the offensive use of observation haki. Some people might wonder, but how can it be offensive??? here starts my theory, and why people like Sanji and Ivankov are even stronger by specializing in observation not armament.

                    First of all, let’s look at this page:

                    When Sanji inside Nami’s body was using observation haki to find Kinemon’s body. He basically said that the “Life Force” of Kinemon’s body is growing too weak. Which is why he barely was able to find it since it was being eaten by a shark lmao.

                    So, what is the use of that? what does that tell us????

                    Sanji with observation is able to sense the life force of things. Which is imo how people are able to determine someone’s strength by observation haki as rayleigh said as one of the features of observation haki. But how can sensing the “Life Force” help during the fight???????

                    We know that Sanji is a Martial Artist who inherited his style from Old man Zeff. We also know that Ivankov is a master of Okama Martial Arts, right????

                    Have you ever heard about “Pressure Points” in Martial Arts??????????


                    Pressure Points are vulnerable spots in the body that when you apply pressure on them, you can either, inflect huuuge damage, paralyze or even kill with it and real life martial artists always uses them as their basis in their fights.

                    In other words, I think Observation Haki can be used in the offensive way by knowing where is a weak and vulnerable point in the enemy body since with observation you can sense the life force.
                    And with that, we can clearly see that It is much better for Sanji who is a martial artist to be specialized in observation since he doesn’t depend on brute force like Zoro.

                    Let me guys know your thoughts about this feature of observation being used to sense the weak, vulnerable spot in the enemies body where you attack it, even if your armament is weaker than the enemy, the enemy will be inflected with a huuge damage and be defeated.
